Asking because of course mcmasters has 6 ft lengths of clear tubing or if you want color, you go with primochill at 3 ft lengths.

Of course another benefit of mcmasters is the price. The downfall of 6ft is you would have to thread the 9mm cord in quite a ways depending on your bend. This is all speculation on my side for my upcoming build.

i bought 4 6 foot lengths for my last build. turned out much better than the one i did with primochill tube. i used 1 tube out of them lol. i have so much left over.

Is that bottom run actually touching the PSU?

with such a big case i would at least buy the mcmaster stuff to pracitce run with until you feel confident, i wasted 6 ft of primochill UV blue before i got my first useable bend. primochill is $2.50/foot for the colored stuff if you buy the 4-24" packs and $3.30/ft in the 3ft lengths.

I'm really agreeing with you, clear gives you more options for different color fluids plus cost is a big advantage, plus extra to practice with as you mentioned.

Going to start with 12 ft and see what happens...

Found it

9679K27 Metric Buna-N O-Ring Cord Stock, 9.0mm Nominal Width, .354" Actual Width, 3 ft. Length

Thanks Darlene

ive always used 3/8 ID. you lose pressure with larger ID tube. i havent tried using the 1/2" ID acrylic but from watching videos it looks to bend easier then the smaller 3/8 ID stuff, when i say easier to bend i mean easier to get a nice smooth radius on the bend with no kinking/flattening.

the primochill UV blue tube is actually clear when not under UV light ( a slight blue tint) which is why i went with that so i could get the UV effect with some cathodes and also have a colored coolant for when the UV isnt on incase thats something youre looking for. also the mcmaster stuff seems to bend a bit easier then primochill, but be warned they ship the tubes in 6ft lengths unwrapped in a cardboard tube, and they will have tons of micro scratching from transport/storage.

Tubing size has no impact on performance. Just buy whatever you find aesthetically pleasing.

Was the micro scratches acceptable, do they really stand out when the product is finished or anything to take the scratches out, curious your thoughts or how you handled it.

Thanks
